What is the Business Service Module?

The Opsview Business Service Module (BSM) allows you to create groupings of hosts and services a bit like Hashtags but they go a bit further as they allow you to define Business Service dependencies and redundancies. Within Business Services you can easily define Components, which are sets of related service checks and then set the operational zone.

For example, with a clustered pair of Exchange servers you can add them to a Component and then set a 50% operational zone, meaning only either one of the two servers is required to be up at any one time for this part of the Business Service to be operational. They can then be grouped into a Business Service.
